Korea Day at Dodgers Stadium, Dodgers vs. Reds

I recent won tickets a few days back for the Dodgers game today (07/28/2013). So this post will be about my experience to a baseball game. The only reason I enter the giveaway for the tickets was because it was Korea Day and Taeyeon, Sunny and Tiffany from Girls' Generation would be there. I was super excited to actually see them in person for the first time. Sadly they didn't have a fan signing event. :(
Got tickets thanks to Korea Tourism Organization, LA . If you love Korea, be sure to give them a like on FB.

Well I have to say that today was my first time watching a baseball game so I had to read the rules and stuff ahead of time so I would know what was happening. However I didn't read enough and was still confused throughout the game. lol
*No offense to any baseball fans who read this :(

All of the pictures I took was with my Canon T4i and the 55-250mm lens. The photos was edited quickly with Lightroom so some may be good and some bad. Also some photos... well most of the photos were cropped in. Even with good seats, 250mm doesn't really get you that close. Plus people were always in the way. >:O
I think its time for a new lens. :D
And here are the photos:

The place is so empty. We were one hour early.

The Reds warming up and stretching.

This was my view from where I was sitting. Next five pictures were taken with the 18-55mm lens at 35mm.

Its Korea Day. :D


The sign was saying "Welcome" in different language so I took a picture of it in Korean since its Korea Day.


Performance start

Very important looking people

KTO mascots

Getting the field ready

Right now its Girls' Generation
That safety net ruined my pictures OTL

Sunny waving to a big group of Sones that called out to her. Sadly I was a lone sone in another direction.

Tiffany getting ready for the interview.

Interview time

Taeyeon about to sing the Korean's National Anthem. Hearing her voice live was beautiful.

Now Tiffany getting ready to sing the American's National Anthem. Tiffany's voice was also very beautiful in person.

Sunny practicing her pitching.

Sexy pose. :D

 Hyun Jin Ryu and Shin Soo Choo.

Sunny going to the pitching mount.

Couldn't decide if I wanted to take photos or a video. Ended up with a somewhat decent video of her pitch.

Game Start. Took some picture here and there while watching the game the rest of the time.

These four pictures were the only ones shot with continuous burst on my camera.

Player vs Fan games between inning.

Another fan game. Fan won a 2 day trip to Korea. Lucky him.

Taeyeon and Sunny at their seats somewhere.

The seats got packed with fans.

The final inning.

Dodgers win with a home run by Puig.

That is all I have. Well I have a video of Taeyeon singing the last line of the Korean anthem and Tiffany singing the anthem but the audio quality is terrible. Comment if you want me to upload the videos to youtube and linked from this post.
